  1. 02. The Real Thing (New 7″ Radio)
    Love this radio version, It’s going directly to my Ipod

  2. quality, 7 inch mix is rare

  3. yes still remember this emotive love story singed by mr di bart..

  4. I’m proud to say I jumped on this when it was first released in 1993 and it was one of my top choons for the year. Even though The Joy Brothers ’94 mixes are responsible for giving it mainstream success a year later, I still think the Original Dance Mix is Top Notch!
    White Soul Vocals set to an atmospheric club choon…just can’t beat that combination!

  5. I’m surprised that this tune has so many fans! I was never really crazy about it, but I agree with Ric that the original mixes are better than the later Joy Brothers version. Interesting back story – I wonder what Mr. Di Bart is doing these days…

  6. Please can I have the password? I have this on vinyl but no turntables anymore!
